KITTERY — Kittery police are seeking the public’s help in locating a man who recently entered the Kittery Trading Post, purchased ammunition, and then disassembled a rifle before walking out of the store with the weapon without paying for it.

Kittery police posted a security photograph of the suspect on their Facebook page on Thursday, as well as a photograph what appears to be a dark Chevy Cruze the man was driving.

According to the police department’s news release, the man entered the store — there is no date given as to when the theft took place — and purchased ammunition.

The man then walked over to the firearm display rack and disassembled a Ruger 10-22 rifle. He hid the rifle in his jacket and left the store.

Anyone with information concerning the theft should contact Detective Ray Hazen at 439-1638.
